Happy Free Comic Book Day! Don’t miss out on these Conan and Doctor Who treats!

Free Comic Book Day is upon us once more, and many participating shops across the country will be offering plenty of fun happenings alongside a selection of some of the 48 free comics on offer in this year’s annual promotion of comic stores, organised by Diamond Distributors.

Britain’s Titan Comics has not one but two free comics on offer this year – the Doctor Who: The Fifteenth Doctor Free Comic Book Day Edition, which precedes the launch of their first series featuring Ncuti Gatwa’s Doctor; and a

The new Doctor Who story, written by Dan Watters with art by Kelsey Ramsay will be available to pick up at your local comic shop today, Free Comic Book Day, Saturday 4th May 2024.

With his courageous companion, Ruby Sunday, the Doctor is back in the TARDIS for a whole new era of time-traveling tales. But fearsome foes await…

The FCBD taster will be followed by the release of Doctor Who: The Fifteenth Doctor #1 on 26th June, from the same core creative team, coloured by Valentina Bianconi.

Battle of the Black Stone” gets a dramatic launch in the Conan the Barbarian Free Comic Book Day Edition. Conan of Cimmerian is haunted by shadows, a nightmare of events glimpsed beneath dark waters of the past. The unspeakable evil foretold by Thulsa Doom looms over the Hyborian Age and every age connected to it… and it will take more than a Barbarian King to stop its relentless march upon time, space, and sanity.

The launch of an epic new Conan Event from Heroic Signatures and Titan
Comics is brought to you by Jim Zub (Conan the Barbarian, Dungeons & Dragons) and red hot artist Jonas Scharf (Dark X-Men, Basilisk) with a cover by fan-favourite Rob de la Torre (Conan the Barbarian).

The new Age of High Adventure launched to high acclaim and record sales in 2023 and continues stronger than ever in 2024. Do not miss it!
